    • Errrrr…..Cessna and Beechcraft had way more fatalities during this 2 month period than a single Cirrus accident which had….wait for it….no fatalities. So Walter, please explain why the Cirrus is the bad guy here? Or is this just another of your semi-coherent ramblings that adds absolutely no value to the flight safety discussion?
